  • An interesting exhibition charting William Morris's life and times. I Some of the inter active panels are not available (due to covid) but this does not detract from the displays. Free of charge....  more »

  • We love visiting the William Morris Gallery. The house is beautiful and the exhibition about Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement are very interesting. There is a puppet show and fancy dress the kids can play with in the top floor. The temporary exhibitions are always fascinating and interesting. The service at the cafe could be quicker - that’s the only niggle I have with the gallery.
  • Wonderful to have this lovely place on our doorstep. Especially appreciate the special exhibitions that have been on recently. Cafe is good too...but their coffee is really overpriced. I'd go more if they brought the quality up and prices down in line with the rest of the market. Gift shop could sell more local products and art.
